The grande dame of Denver hotels was built in 1892, and is still considered the city's most prestigious address. Famous guests have included President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, and Beyonce. Even if you aren't staying here, the Brown Palace lobby is a great place to sit on comfortable old couches, drink tea, and listen to piano standards (or harp, during afternoon tea). Reputedly this was the first atrium hotel in the United States; its ornate lobby and nine
stories are crowned by a Tiffany stained-glass window.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Brown Palace recently. Although the elegance speaks for itself, the level of service is what really imppressed us. We decided to have dinner at the Hyatt and accidentally left our credit card there. When we returned to the Brown Palace for drinks, we discovered our problem. Even though it was well-past midnight, the staff called the Hyatt and waited on hold for over 20 minutes while I had cocktails,
eventually having the card couriered from the Hyatt. Finding that level of customed service is unheard of, even if the hotel is $250 a night. Great value, great place, we'll be back
